7:48 am
to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem that doesn't require regular blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. gps: proceed to the designated route. not today. for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. don't stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines.

xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once-a-day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring, no known dietary restrictions. for information and savings options, download the xarelto® patient center app call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com. if you have medicare part d, walgreens gets that you might be at the corner of "looking for a good deal" and "sheesh, i wish i'd looked some more." that's why walgreens makes it

8:15 am
>> right, right. >> what is it that causes you to have rest contribute to your symptoms? >> exactly. you know charlie, the study couldn't identify exactly why but there are a couple of reasons, why? if kids feel debilitated, they're on five days of bed rest, they report on symptoms. if you're in bed for five days you feel weak, headachey, and dizzy. >> this is something. i have a girlfriend whose son was playing basketball and hit on the head by an elbow and i remember her telling me he had to stay in his room for over a week with lights down and that's been striebed if many kids with concussions and now you're saying there could be physiological backlash. >> yes. but in all fairness that's rare. we use 48 hours of rest to prevent serious complications.

it was supposed to be a quick holiday visit to new york but last week it turned into a medical adventure when katy gave birth to her child three months early. michelle miller is here to tell us why the surprise birth was also a huge financial burden on the couple. >> boy was it.
8:21 am
katy was unaccustomed to american hospitals and health care. she worried that she and her fiance would be stuck with bills they couldn't afford and while they do have to manage the expense of living in new york for the next few months, one thing they don't have to worry about, the hospital bills. british couple lee johnson and katy amos thought a quick trip across the pond between christmas and new year's would be a piece of cake. pregnant with her first child she was beginning her third trimester. three days into their trip and on a tour of manhattan central park katy suddenly went into labor 11 weeks early. the couple headed to lenox hill hospital on new york's upper east side. >> at what point did it dawn on you i might be in a pickle. >> i looked at you and i said maybe these are contractions and you look at me and said really? that's when.
8:22 am
when i went to the hospital and i was laid out on the bed and they were checking me and they were like, yeah, you're dilating, and i'm like i'm having a baby in new york. >> katy delivered baby dax, all 3 pounds 4 ounces of him and they rushed him to the neonatal care unit. >> i said i want to go home. they said you're not going home. >> nearly three months early dax has to develop under the supervision of doctors and that could take time according to amy marshal, the manager of nicu. >> before he goes home he has to get bigger, get off any respiratory support and eat on his own. >> that could be march. >> katy and lee are both self-employed personal trainers with no money coming in. lisa, a nurse navigator has helped to guide the couple giving birth in new york. >> this is quite supreme.
8:23 am
she's 29 pregnant, and lives out of the country. >> reporter: back home a friend created a facebook page for dax and started a crowd funding. it was said the hospital accepts the health coverage. >> we're going to sep what insurance would pay. other than that there's not going to be any out of pocket for them because we need to except what their insurance will help. >> through british health insurance and travel insurance, it's now not the medical bills giving the couple pause, rather the living in new york. lennox hospital helped them secure housing ape long with bassics. >> i myself went to the apartment and got clothesing fehr her because i knew she didn't have anything and we're about the same size. unfortunately he's not the same side so i could. get him any clothes. >> they've already been through

8:31 am
men to mind the gap. plus it my be the biggest trend in 2015. take break from your gadgets. nicholas thompson is in studio 57. he shows us how to resist the urge to text tweet, and be glued to facebook. that's ahead. right now it's time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. britain's "guardian" says it's denouncing for the first time that prince andrew had sex with an underaged girl. this case is part of a lawsuit against multimillnary investor jeffrey epstein. prince andrew is not charged. cleveland's "the plain dealer" says they report lid want to make wearing a hoodie in public a crime. they want to help victims of armed robbery. it would include a fine of up to $5,000 and a year in jail.
8:32 am
and "usa today" says mark zuckerberg who wear as hoodie wants to start a book club. he wreeftsites a post my challenge is to read a book a month. the first selection is the end of power by moses nine. >> oprah, watch out. book club. >> book club. you know that's great goal to try to read a new book every other week and try to keep pace. not. america just starting year two of obamacare. the government says more than 6.5 million people signed up for coverage through the federal website. coverage is expanding and so are costs. the deductible for the least expensive plan is $100 higher than last year and the average premium for the higher rose 3%. meanwhile a gallup poll found americans delayed medical treatment because of the cost. steven brill has spent years
8:33 am
discovering it. his new book is "america's bitter pill." steven brill is with us this morning. steven, good morning. >> good morning. >> so the president promised not only would health care be more accessible but it would also be more affordable. is that true? >> it's certainly more accessible to tens of millions of americans and it's more affordable to them because they're getting their insurance premiums paid for in large part by the government. so it's certainly not more affordable for the tax pairs. we basically have created a system where the good news is that many more people get the kind of health care you and i get. the bad news is that the taxpayers are paying for it and they're paying the sameexorbitant prices. >> you know the main question is
8:34 am
the cost. >> the cost. >> did obama do anything to bring down the cost? >> no. as i recount in the book, at every turn when they try to do something substantive to brick the cost down such as control the price of drugs, deal with the exorbitant non-profit hospital high profits, they were stopped by the lobbyists. and the best test of all this is the only way that a bill this big will pass in washington is if the powers that be decided that it should pass. so the drug companies are making more money, the hospitals, the medical disease makers are making more money and everybody is happy except the taxpayer. >> but is it what the president said it was going to be or are you saying no it's not. it's his fault in terms of lobbyists and others? >> the president said two things. more people would have access to health care. >> and they do. >> and they do. the president said it would
8:35 am
bring down the cost of health care and it does not. >> is it because of the legislation or something else? >> it's balls of the legislation. there's nothing in the legislation that brings down the health care. >> what you experienced and how that was an insight into what's going on. is what's wrong with the cost -- i mean what are the things that you discovering that we're paying a lot more for than we should be paying for? >> we're paying a lot more for everything because we have this naive assumption that health care can be a marketplace when every one of us who's sitting here knows that when we're sick, we're not a santa barbaray consumer of health care. we have no idea what we're buying. we have no idea what the cost is going to be. we have no control over those costs. and the only thing we know is we're scared and we want to get better. >> you open your book that way actually, stephen. here you are in the middle of open heart surgery while you're working on this book. so you really have a very unique
8:36 am
perspective. your bill came to close to $200,000 after eight days. tell us the per spelkts tib of being on the other side and trying to get great health care. >> what i learned is i didn't care about the cost at the moment i was lying on the gurney and nobody would. you'll beg, borrow, steal whatever you have to to get yourself healthy or your loved one healthy. what i also learned is insurance companies get very little leverage. my insurance company got the 12% discount formy $190,000. what i also learned was it didn't matter that much to me because i have the means to satisfy the deductible that i have to pay and after that, you know, the whole thing was free. >> you have gramt moment where you go to the head of the hospital to explain it and even he could. explain it to you. >> this is just how emblematic
8:37 am
how screwed up the system is. here is the largest sex tore of our economy. i got an explanation of benefits. everybody watching gets app explanation of benefits from the insurance company and i happened to be interviewing the ceo of health care and i asked him to explain it to me because it said the amount billed was zero but i owed $54. he looked at it all day and said i could explain it to you. >> i said well aren't you they? >> >>ern at home wants to know. they're frustrated by the system. how can it get better? >> it has to get better -- it can only get better when people decide that as health care consumers and as tax pairs they're not going to let the lobbyists in washington for the hospital industry, for the drug industry, for the medical device
8:38 am
industry have their way. that's a difficult thing. this book is really about how this country doesn't work and it uses the largest and most screwed up industry in the country to illustrate that we can't do the nation's business in washington. >> the health care division which is 1/6 of our economy? >> 1/6. it's about the size of france. it's not going to work until we rise up and do something about it. >> when you speak up something happens. >> thank you so much. >> thanking for having me. we'll find out more on "60 minutes." how it helped shape affordable health care act. that's right hero on "60 minutes" right here on cbs. here's an interesting question. does your commute involve a bus or train? you'll see one guy taking up two seats. gotten so bad it's led to a
8:39 am
